As we had parents’ observation day of my son’s junior high school today I came back home by walking.
I walked on the seaside road after a long time because of busy Golden Week.
We had a little cold wind but it was sunny and hotter than yesterday.
In this season we can see the yellow flowers near the beach.
I took pictures of the nearest beach at the lowest tide when I was walking on the seaside road this afternoon.
We sometimes had strong west wind, but it was very hot under the sun today.

This morning it was sunny and beautiful but the sky was covered with clouds this late afternoon.
The wisteria tree in our field had already started to bloom at the end of March this year. It’s too much earlier than usual.
Today it was a beautiful day and some young people were swimming in the sea water on the beach.
I walked on the seaside road looking over the blue sea.
I was really happy to walk under the sun!
It was sunny this morning, but it became cloudy after that.
Some young boys were swimming in the water at Itami fisherman’s port in Shirahama this afternoon.

Last night my son and I departed from our house at around 10:00 PM, and drove to Mt. Daruma rest house at western side of Izu peninsula, where we can see Mt. Fuji and slept in our car there.
This morning we expected to get the view of Mt. Fuji from that point, but we were not able to see clearly because of clouds.
After that we started to drive again to the southern part of Izu peninsula.
On the top of mountain there still were a lot of snow after snowing 3 days ago.
And we were able to see the beautiful cherry and rape blossoms on the river side in Matsuzaki town on the way home.
Izu peninsula is not so big but it’s very interesting, because we are able to see both of the snow on the top of mountain and the cherry blossoms on the same day.
